This is the major diamond at Hillcrest Park in Vancouver, British Columbia.
Home of the Little Mountain Baseball League.
And home to Howie. Everyone in the neighbourhood knew Howie. He was a baseball afficianado, a kind soul and the friendliest person you would ever meet on a BMX. We grew up with him.
Howie passed away this month. He was burried wearing his blue Little Mountain baseball hat.
He is a very special spirit.

Rest in Peace.... or Play Ball Howie.
Little Mountain won't be the same again.
